I’m learning how to knit!!
As I’m diving deeper and deeper into this whole WWII reenactment stuff, the more I’m realizing I need to learn how to knit. I’ve found so many amazing 40’s patterns on sites like Fabulous Forties Fashions, and haven’t found ANY suitable pre-made sweaters or knitwear items from that time period. So if you want something done right… you know what they say. Plus, every time I look at Lauren’s blog she’s practically rubbing it in my face that she’s cooler than me because she knits amazing things
Obviously I’m not going to be knitting my own long underwear anytime soon, but Knit Lab for Beginners promises to teach me everything I need to know to get started. I’ve been terrified of knitting up until this point, but with a 100% money back guarantee and 50% off the original class price, I’m not going to sit around and be afraid of yarn any longer!! Haha!
As I work through the class, I’ll be sure to share my progress and my input. Craftsy has never let me down with any of their classes before, but I am worried that I’ll get frustrated with myself and not want to stick with it. I know practice makes perfect, and everything takes time to learn, but sewing has always come pretty easy for me and I definitely love that! If it aint broke don’t try something new, right? Hahah I know that’s a terrible outlook to have! I’m going to try it! Plus, with the amount of sweaters I wear, I’d be really stupid not to learn to make my own.
Wish me luck
ALL Craftsy classes are up to 75% off until the 24th, AND they’ve added a lot more free classes to the library. Definitely take advantage of the free classes if nothing else! I know I did. Even the ones I might not ever use like quilting and jewelry making. Because come on, THEY’RE FREE!
